Posted Breed: Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Big and beautiful describes Wyatt perfectly! His sweet mom was a pregnant stray that we rescued in Dallas just prior to having her last litter of puppies. Wyatt was one of her little beauties born in foster care on April 8th, 2013. He’s not so little anymore, weighing in at 75 pounds. Wyatt is an American Staffordshire Terrier mix with floppy ears, soulful eyes and a beautiful brown brindle and white coat. Wyatt fortunately never had to live on the streets as a stray, but sadly he has waited a very long time for that perfect person to adopt him. He is a shy and fearful boy in new or unknown situations, but extremely happy and fun-loving in his comfort zone. If he gets scared or feels threatened, he generally runs away from the cause of it. He needs very slow and calm introductions to new people and other dogs, but once he befriends you, you’re in for lots of good Wyatt love. One of his best buddies says that every time he sees Wyatt, he gets loads of doggy kisses, cuddles and Wyatt wants to lay with him with their faces touching. This pup can show some deep love to his close friends. Wyatt’s foster mom has had him for a little over a year and loves him dearly, but she knows that he could be happier in a home with less action. He would benefit from a calm, stress-free environment where he doesn’t need to be a social butterfly or expected to visit dog parks. He’d be happy as a homebody, watching movies on the couch and be the King of his own backyard. Wyatt often sits on the couch with back end on the seat and his front feet on the floor. It’s quite the silly sight! An experienced dog owner with lots of patience and compassion is what Wyatt needs, but also someone that doesn’t have a constant flow of new people in their home. He enjoys the company of some dogs, but dogs with very high energy or reactive personalities are not for him. He prefers to have a couple of very close, trusted human friends in his life. Wyatt has not spent any time around children, but we feel they may be a bit much for him. He enjoys lots of activities like playing in his kiddie pool, carrying around all types of dog toys and running figure eights in the yard. Watching Wyatt run and play ball with friends is such a treat, especially the giant smile that covers his face. Wyatt is a fantastic leash walker and will stay right alongside of his person if it’s a quiet area without a lot of people but tries very hard to avoid anyone in his path. Wyatt is house, leash and crate trained perfectly. He also is well trained with all of his basic commands and listens well. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. This happy, healthy boy is ready for his forever family! He is dreaming of his future owners, so if you think you are his dream come true and would like to meet him today, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org. Adoption appliations can be submitted for him at http://duckteam6.org/adoption-application/. Wyatt’s adoption fee is $200.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (medium coat). Meet Cash! He is a sweet yet cautious Labrador mix, with a beautiful light tan and white patchy coat. He is estimated to be about 2 1/2 years old and weighs in at 55 pounds. Cash is a really smart guy…he found us rather than us finding him! In our attempts to capture a different dog altogether, Cash walked into the cage instead! Instead of letting him go, we realized it was meant to be and lovingly took him into our program, making a promise to find him a better life. It has now been about 8 months and Cash is safe in a foster home, dreaming of a family to call his own. He has furry foster siblings and his favorite thing to do is run and play with them. You’ll know when he’s ready to play because he will spin around for you. He’s not much into chasing a ball or a toy, but he will be right on the heels of his furry siblings who do like chasing the ball. If he ends up with the ball, he will simply lay down and chew on it. Cash is great with kids that are little bit older and understand that he needs time to warm up. Cash is unsure of new people and new experiences at the moment, but we are seeing consistent improvement in this area. He typically enjoys spending time alone on the floor, doesn’t offer his belly for belly rubs yet, and is a bit nervous of someone walking behind him while on a leash. Recently however, he’s been climbing onto the couch to cuddle with the other dogs, and his foster mom has reported that he has been spending time under her desk on a dog bed with his head resting on her foot. Also, the more walks he goes on, the more he realizes that there is nothing to be afraid of. He takes treats very gently and shows no signs of fear aggression. This progress shows that with a patient and loving family of his own, he will build trust and leave the skittish tendencies behind. Because of his uneasiness in new situations, Cash will need a family that gives him the time to explore and investigate his new home, but also the gentle touch that will help him continue to build trust and confidence. He would also benefit greatly from having both doggie and human siblings to play with. Cash does not like being locked in a crate at all, but prefers the door open so he can walk in and out of it as he pleases. He is a perfectly healthy boy, house-trained, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Cash’s ideal new family will be a patient and active one with both furry and human siblings. He would not be a great running partner or traveler at this time due to his tendency to be overwhelmed by new experiences. In the right supportive environment, Cash can become a loyal and confident family member. If this describes your family, we would like to make this connection! The first step is to send an email to placement@duckteam6.org, so we can reach out to you to set up a visit. Cash's adoption fee is $200.

      Sex: Female Female

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Shar Pei / Mixed (short coat). This is sweet Coco. We've actually known her since her puppy days when her owner went through our Community Outreach Program to have her spayed and vaccinated 4 years ago. Since the rabies tag was registered to us, we were alerted when she recently showed up at a shelter. Turns out, her whole perfect world was suddenly flipped upside down when her owner ran into some financial trouble recently and lost his home. He was no longer able to properly care for Coco, and he had no choice but to reluctantly surrender her. We immediately visited the shelter and took Coco to a foster home. She is doing well and getting along great with the foster family's dogs. Coco loves her foster family, but is ready to start her forever life over again. Coco is a beautiful Chocolate Lab/Shar-Pei mix. She weighs 62 pounds, and has a short, stocky build. She has the most adorable floppy ears that are so soft to the touch! She does very well with people and other medium to large dogs, but she and cats do not mix well. Take a look into Coco's gorgeous eyes and consider making room in your heart and home for her. She is waiting for you, and we would love to make that connection. The first step is to email placement@duckteam6.org if you are interested in making her a member of your family. Coco is spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She’s ready to have a family again and will make an amazingly companion. Her adoption fee is $200.

      Breed: Doberman Pinscher-Labrador Retriever Mix

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Doberman Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). My name is Anna, although many call me “Ears.” I’m fine with either name as long as I can get cuddles, too. You may have already seen my film debut on the Duck Team 6 Facebook page when they used to call me Racetrac Anna. As my name suggests, I was living alone at a gas station for about two months, all the while being fed by an amazing Duck Team 6 volunteer. She was trying to help get me out of that place, but I wasn’t sure I could trust her yet. Fast forward to early August when the volunteer team set up a safe trap for me. I didn’t know it was there for me the first night, but the second night I decided it was time to have a better life. Why didn’t I do this sooner? I’m no longer alone, and best of all, I’m safe. Nobody really knows what my breed is, but my foster mom believes that I may be a mix of Labrador and Doberman Pinscher. I’m about 1-1/2 years old, 49 pounds and have a slender and athletic build. I’ve been in my foster home for about a week now and my foster mom loves the fact that I never bark. I prefer howling when I’m excited because it’s so much cuter! Don’t let my initial shyness fool you…I really do love people. After just about half an hour, I’ll be sitting next to you and kissing your face. My foster parents and I clicked right away, and I’m still figuring out the strange behavior of their 4-year old daughter. She moves really fast and talks a little loud, but I’m learning quickly that she means no harm. I have two furry foster sisters who are really great dogs! They are showing me the ropes and we get along very well. Before them, I knew several other dogs as well that I got along with. I hope my forever family has a young active furry friend or two for me to run around with also. What can I say about these ears of mine? They sure do make me look spunky, but it’s a bit of a disguise. Everyone who has met me has figured out quickly that I am a very sweet girl and transitioning into a new family has been and will be a breeze for me and them. I’m a master of affection, and you can tell by the many kisses I give to my friends. I follow my current people all over the house without them even knowing because I’m very light on my feet. These tile and hardwood floors are quite different than the dirt at the gas station, but I’ve had no trouble adjusting. I’ve lost my footing only a few times while trying to catch my ball. Speaking of my ball, toys are amazing! I didn’t have any toys where I came from, and my favorites right now are a soft one filled with stuffing and a Nylabone. I love playing outside in my backyard, and would love to find a great jogging partner in my forever home. When playtime is over, I really enjoy naptime. As much fun as I’m having at my foster home, I’m dreaming of a family I can call my own. I am completely housetrained and pretty good on the leash. I never pull, but I get a little distracted by new things while on walks. A little practice is all I need and I’ll be walking straight in no time. My dog bed is set up near my foster mom’s bed, and I love to sleep there all night long. I do not like the kennel, but it’s okay because I have not destroyed anything while roaming the house. I’m spayed, heartworm negative, fully vaccinated and microchipped. I can’t wait to meet my new family! I’ll know if you’re the one when you rub my ears just right. If you think I’m the girl for you, please send an email to placement@duckteam6.org so we can meet in person. Or, if it is love at first sight, you can go straight to the adoption application at https://duckteam6.org/adoption-application/. My adoption fee is $200.

      Breed: Plott Hound-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Plott Hound / Mixed (short coat). Meet Junior! He is a stunning Plott Hound Mix, with a dark brindle coat and eyes that will draw you right in. He is just over a year old and weighs in at 52 pounds. His story is one of courage, strength and triumph. Once you hear it, you’ll fall in love with this incredible boy just as we have… Junior started life already on the streets of Dallas. He was born to a stray mom who was part of a small pack. The pack kept him as safe as they knew how, but his curiosity got the best of him at just 5 months old. He was hit by a car as he found himself in the middle of a busy street. The car just kept going, and without a loving owner to rush him to the vet, he had no choice but to continue the difficult street dog life with a double leg fracture. After nearly two weeks and many attempts, we finally got close enough to get him the care he needed. It has now been 8 months since his capture, and what a difference!! Junior has fully recovered from his injuries, graduated from his training program and is safe with a loving foster family. He’s a little shy with new people and places, but the more love and affection he receives, the more the shyness fades away. He enjoys cuddle time on the couch, but is still learning to trust people walking directly up to him. His reaction to unknown situations is simply to move away and has never shown an ounce of aggression. Junior currently lives with two other dogs who he adores. He plays well with them and is great on group walks with a leash. They nap together as well! The ideal new family for Junior will also have other furry friends to keep him company. Junior is also great with children; his foster family has two. As Junior spends time with his foster family, he opens up more and more. They have noticed that some of his favorite things to do are entertain himself on the trampoline, bouncing and running side to side, run around the yard, play with toys and challenge his foster sister to a good game of tug-of-war. We’re hoping Junior’s new family will be excited to continue to enjoy these activities with him, and take him on the daily walks he so looks forward to. Because of his rough beginnings, Junior may take a little longer to adjust to his new family, but patience and understanding will be well worth it when his new family realizes what a loyal member of the family he will become. He is so appreciative of treats, and receives them so gently. Getting treats will help him trust his new people faster, too! With the right family that is active, compassionate and patient, Junior will likely settle in quickly and build up his confidence and trust. Junior doesn’t mind his crate at all, and as a matter of fact, he considers it his safe space. He is also leash- and house-trained, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Junior’s ideal new life will be a happy and active environment with a furry sibling, and lots of hugs and kisses. The less car rides the better, though, because he has a tendency to get motion sickness. If you can see Junior as a perfect addition to your family, we would love to make that connection. The first step is to send an email to placement@duckteam6.org, and we will connect you directly with his foster mom to set up a visit. Junior's adoption fee is $200.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Dalmatian / Mixed (short coat). Are you looking for endless affection, smiles when you walk in the door and a loyal friend for years to come? Sadie is the answer to your prayers! She is a 2 year old pittie mix, weighing about 42 pounds. Her brown and white, short, shiny coat is dabbled with the cutest black spots, so it’s possible she’s mixed with Dalmatian. She was found wandering as a tiny puppy, all alone on the streets of Midland and won over her rescuers with her floppy ears and long, constantly wagging tail. She’s been part of a loving family for almost a year and a half, but sadly a serious medical condition in the family is preventing them from giving her the time, attention and exercise that she needs, so we want to find her a family that can make her happy again. Sadie is at her best when she is hanging out with her people and furry friends either playing with her tug toy or her squeaky ball. She also doesn’t complain a bit in her favorite spot on the couch. She curls up in a little ball and soundly naps while the others watch TV until she is offered a bit of popcorn and she’s quickly at attention. She also loves to run in the yard and take walks on her leash, smell the outside air and soak up the sun rays. She currently lives with 3 other dogs and 4 cats and loves the company of all. The 3 year old kiddo in the house loves Sadie and the feeling is mutual. If you’ve never seen a dog overjoyed, be prepared for it when you give Sadie scratches on her rump! It’s a full on happy dance! Sadie is an attention hog and she thrives in situations where she can get and give attention. She would adore having a medium to large furry playmate to keep her active during the day and a family eager to spend time with her whenever possible. She’s an active dog and needs daily exercise, but still wants to be an inside dog when her people are away. Sadie is a healthy, happy girl, is updated on all vaccinations, is spayed and on Heartgard and Advantix. She is a pretty low maintenance girl in terms of grooming, but a diva when it comes to loving and being loved. Be warned…Sadie has no problem giving affection, including endless puppy kisses. Kiss her and she'll kiss you back for sure. She is leash and house trained and is accustomed to a typical work day schedule. Sadie is in our Guest Dog Program and her adoption process will be handled by her current caretakers and Duck Team 6 will assist. She is precious, loving and full of fun-loving attitude. Please email us at placement@duckteam6.org for more information or if you just feel it in your heart that she’s your new lovebug, submit your adoption application here: https://duckteam6.org/adoption-application/. Her adoption fee is $200.

      Posted Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Can you imagine driving down the road and seeing an injured dog lying in the ditch, unable to move? Well, one amazing family found just that and jumped into action. They saved this young pup’s life after he’d been hit by a car and left to suffer. He instantly had a hero and he’s beyond grateful. They named this handsome boy Chance. Chance is a 1-year old male American Staffordshire Terrier, with the shiniest coat we’ve ever seen. He is a medium sized pup, weighing in about 40 pounds and estimated to only be about 1 year old. His ears often stand up as if he’s saying “you want to play?” or lie down when he’s relaxed and getting some love. Don’t look deep into Chance’s eyes unless you want to fall in love because they are full of soul. He has a scar on his back that tells us that he had a rough life even prior to that fateful day in the ditch. His rescuers have made him a promise that he will never hurt or want for anything again. They are determined to find his perfect forever family. Chance is his happiest when he is with his people or another dog. He is a perfect inside dog because he loves to snuggle on the couch or in bed. He quickly turns playful with other dogs or when he is given toys. Chance is very grateful for any and all attention he is shown and rewards you with tail wags, loyalty, sweet looks and, if you’re really lucky, a kiss! If Chance is told NO for something, you can actually see this little guy’s feelings get hurt. He simply wants to please his family. He loves to run and play in the yard and at the park, despite the surgery he had to fix his broken leg. The car ride to the park might be his favorite part of the whole day! He is good with older, considerate children and would love someone to play and explore with. He currently lives in a foster home with both small and large dogs (and puppies not too long ago), so he’d enjoy either in his new family. He doesn’t like to be alone, so he’s the best type of company for another dog if his parents will be gone for work. He does however need to be fed separately from other dogs since he tends to be protective of his food, likely learned from being undernourished prior to his rescue. Chance is not a fan of cats and shouldn’t be adopted into a family with cats or with neighborhood cats that often visit. He is fully vaccinated, neutered and on heartworm preventative. He is housebroken and is still getting better on his leash walks. If you’d like more information about Chance or to meet him, please email us at placement@duckteam6.org.
